St Mirren sign Junior Morias for undisclosed fee

St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of striker Junior Morias on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee subject to international clearance. 

The 24 year-old Jamaican forward joins the club from English League Two side Northampton Town where he played with fellow Saint Sam Foley.

Junior began his career at Wycombe Wanderers before spells at Boreham Wood and St Albans caught the eye of Peterborough United where he made 51 appearances between 2017 and 2018.

Speaking to stmirren.com, Junior said: "I got a phone call a couple of days ago from my agent and I knew this is what I wanted to do. 

"It's a new challenge. I love challenges and I'm ready to put in the work.

"I spoke to Foles (Sam Foley) and I asked him about everything I needed to know. He said there were a great bunch of lads here, good staff and it was all positive.

"I had a good conversation with the manager and I know what he wants to achieve and it matches what I want to do."

Saints manager Jim Goodwin said: "Junior has played at a decent level down in England. 

"He's a very good footballer, technically good and physically very strong. He's good with his back to goal, links the game up and has a turn of pace as well which is important in the modern day game.

"We're very lucky to have him in and I'm excited to see him in training tomorrow."
